The role of mayor is one of the most prestigious in Peterborough, and for one afternoon school children got to experience what the position is all about.

Pupils from the Duke of Bedford Primary School in Thorney were given that honour on Wednesday as they were invited to Town Hall to meet the mayor, Cllr David Over.

And the children were able to step into the mayor’s shoes for the day as they were allowed to try on his robes.

One lucky child was 10-year-old Charlie Rice who is pictured next to Cllr Over wearing the mayor’s ceremonial garments alongside his class-mates.
